When ball doesn't hit the bat or body or batsman and the wicket keeper fails to collect it neatly and ball travels away, the batsman has got the chance to run or ball may cross the boundary, these runs are extra runs known as bye. These are neither added to batsman total nor to the bowler's stats.

(see pic above) Run(s) scored on "wild pitches". i.e. when the ball goes past the wicket-keeper/catcher without having been touched by the batter, and runs can be scored (much like "stolen bases on wild piches" in baseball). The runs are added to the team total as "extras", but not credited to batters... nor charged to bowlers.
